She's alive!

Ok ok! After many emails and curious clients, family members and friends- nope, I'm not dead. Yes, I'm fine. I truly do appreciate everyone who was concerned though! You guys are very sweet to check up on me! Here is my reason for being absent lately... STUDENT TEACHING!! I am sooo busy with it! But, on the bright side, I only have a few more weeks of it and then maybe I can get a job and get paid for working 40 hour weeks with first graders.
Do I like it? Love it. I really think that it's what I'm meant to do! I know some of you might think I'm crazy for wanting to teach but you wouldn't believe how enjoyable I find it. It's an extremely fufilling career and I have the best stories! (Can you believe I had a student wear their pants to school backwards?? Freaking hilarious!)
What about my photography business? Well, I booked a few weddings for next year but have decided to stop taking them for '09. I still adore photography and love shooting weddings but feel like the teaching career is my calling. As of right now, we (me and Shane) graduate in December and will need to start looking for jobs. I plan to stick around Lubbock as long as I can find a job in August, but if not we'll have to go where the job is. After I get settled in my teaching career I may still take on some summer weddings, but as of right now I'm just booking sessions. (Engagements, Bridals, After sessions, families and yes, maybe even kiddos)
To my current clients: Yes, I am still 100% dedicated to you and you will still recieve excellent service and quality products! No worries there!
Thanks again for all the caring people who were checking up on me! I'll try to do better blogging now that the semester is winding down!

I leave you with our Christmas card for this year. Pictures thanks to Lauren Zaffos!!

I've been wondering where you've been. Thanks for the blog love and I'm glad to hear an update from you. I think it's wonderful that you've found your calling and can still have a way to keep photography in the mix (since youre off on summers!)
